Meal Plan

Plan your weekly menu before you head to the store. Make your list and stick to it. Even better, do 2 weeks at a time and then you only have to get odds and ends. Saves time because you have everything you need on hand. You save on impulse purchases by sticking to your list.

Quit smoking.. go to the casino instead

I was paying 6.30 x 30 days a month . Thats180.00 I spend at the casino. I even win sometimes. Try to stay in the non smoking section when you first quit. Look at it this way..... At least your not killing yourself.

Car Washing

Instead of using the drive through car wash, do it yourself. You can save a few dollars a month doing this. Also it adds a little activity to your day.

Ditch the windex!

A super easy glass cleaner that dose just as well if not better is as follows. Take a spray bottle and fill half with warm water. Add two tbsp. of corn starch and fill the rest of the bottle with equal parts vinegar and rubbing alcohol. Shake well before each use as corn starch will settle. Try a batch I bet you will love it!

Ditch costly cleaners!

Even the dollar store cant beat the price of a homemade cleaner in the long run! Vinegar and water cleans almost everything just as well! You just mix it in a spray bottle and go! Use at least a 1 to 4 ratio but if you don't mind the smell you can use it straight!
